If money was not an issue in your life would you ever consider hiring a maid, chef or chauffeur? If you could only hire one of these professions, which do you think you would consider hiring and why? Me, I would hire a chauffeur, I don't need someone to clean my house, my family likes my cooking but I hate to drive, in fact, I make my boyfriend drive everywhere for me. So for me the best would be a Chauffeur, what about you?

Wow, what a choice! Only one, huh? I like to cook and I don't mind driving, but me and housework...we don't get along so well!;) lol I have a very busy life and I'm facing two possible surgeries in the near future so a maid would be nice. My family is pretty good about helping out around the house, but I seem to suffer from the "if you want something done right, do it yourself" syndrome. I've had a maid on a part-time basis years ago when my kids were little and it was so nice to come home to a fresh smelling house. So, one maid to go, please!

I'd definitely hire a chauffeur. Like you, I hate driving and this would be ideal for me. Also a maid would be great...there is just too much time spent cleaning in my opinion. I'm not a big fan of food in general so a chef would be unnecessary but would probably hire one for my wife as she would love that.

Unsure why I hate to drive due to the traffic or the drivers, but either way it is not an enjoyable experience, thanks for contributing

I'd hire them all, at this time I hardly have time to do for myself, so that would be much help to me.

I don't even have to stop and think about this question. I would hire a maid. I hate housecleaning with a passion. I would love to have someone to do it for me. I love to drive and I don't mind cooking but it is not my most favorite. But housecleaning is the one I hate the most.

Money will never be an issue to me. I would hire a made, but I still live with my mom at the mean time. I like to cook myself or eat out, so I don't really need a chef. I drive myself, which I like, so I do not need a chauffeur as well. So here you go, money isn't the issue.

I'd hire them. That would at least give someone a job. And i'll pay good and i'll treat them as equal. So i'll win their loyalty.

I think even if I had the money i would not want any of those. I like to drive and as for my home because I have had to have someone help me when I hurt my arm and I just didnt like the way they cleaned it. and I will make my own food.

If money was not an issue..I will hire them all! :) but if i have to choose one, I think it's gonna be a maid. I don't have time now to clean and organize my stuff, but really it would also be good if i ccould hire a cook.

I would love a chauffeur, or a chef. I don't need a maid, I can do the cleaning in my house on my own, and there's no real need for anyone else to be doing it. I can't drive though, so a chauffeur would be nice. Alternatively, the chef. I can never be bothered to cook for myself, so end up eating junk instead of a proper meal. It would be great to have someone to do it for me!

A maid Please! Maybe two or three. It seems house work is nedver done. I like to drive and I can cook a good meal just need someone to clean up. Why do you know any free maids? Or how about this I will drive for you and you can clean my house. We can start a myLot exchenge program.

I would definitely hire a chauffeur because I don't drive although I have a driving license. Like I shared in previous posts, I am a menace on the road since I can't focus very well and am the nervous sort so in order not to kill myself and others I stay away from driving. I can cook my own meals and enjoy doing it so I don't need a chef and since I live in a small apartment I don't need a maid to do household chores for me. Therefore, a chauffeur for me everytime!!

Labor is cheap in the philippines ao i grew up with maids doing all our household chores and we had chauffeurs, and one of the maids is assigned to be the family cook. Yes. Life is definitely easier with help around. But I will not allow my kids to be pampered the way we were pampered. I had a hard time looking after myself when i finally had to live on my own. Now that I've learned how to do household chores, cook, clean etc, I'm pretty proud of myself. But people here, myself included, still definitely rely on maids to look after kids, and helpwith the house chores.

ABsolutely no contest...hands down...without a doubt....the answer for me is........A MAID.....oh, yes...I love to drive, cooking is fun when I have the time and easy enough when I don't...but housecleaning...windows, washing walls, dusting, mopping floors, scouring bathrooms and the kitchen,cleaning the oven and refrigerator, cleaning cupboards out,sorting the grandkids toys, straightening the closets.....that is what take so much time and energy...I would LOVE to have a maid...and it would be the first thing I did if I suddenly came into some money...It would add so much time to my life...time that I could do charity work..time that I could use to better lives...mine and other peoples...BIG VOTE for the maid!!!! Yahoooo...

I would hire someone to cook I stress alot over what I'm going to cook and it drives me bonkers I don't mind cleaning and and the rest. I love driving and always do the running around it is by dinner time I feel sick from the stress of what to cook and hoping that it will turn out nice :) I do love cooking but it is always hard trying to think of something different to try instead of the same old stuff...

I make my partner drive too when we are together. LOL But I really don't mind driving...unless it is snowing. Then I hate driving because this Florida girl slips or just goes too slow. ha ha I wouldn't hire a maid because I am pretty good about cleaning my house. And that would take the chores away from my children. Which I believe that they should have chores to teach them how to clean up after themselves. I will not be a mother that goes to their house to clean it or do their laundry. I would hire a Chef. Even though my family loves my cooking...and I admit that I do cook well. It has gotten to the point that I hate cooking anymore. Standing in a hot kitchen with seven kids and three dogs running around and being loud. I don't know how many times I have to ask a child to not come in the kitchen or trip over a dog. now, of course, this Chef out have to be very tolerant of my house. LOL But at least I wouldn't have to do it anymore. hehe

It would definitely be a maid that does laundry! I love to drive, and I love to cook, so I'd do that on my own. But if I had a maid to do all the cleaning and especially do the laundry, I'd be in heaven!!!
